This is another of the lovely squares in Savannah’s historic district. It’s centerpiece is the impressive and beautiful monument to Tomochichi, the Native American who helped a James Oglethorpe found the colony of Georgia. Be sure to read the interesting historical plaques in this square.

This square was great to visit this February with colorful flowering trees. Some of the blooms were fantastic smelling. One of the better squares in the city.
